    Defender AntiVirus

    There are 4 options under Defender. Two refer to AntiVirus; AntiVirus Network Inspection Service & AntiVirus Services. Under Startup Type these two are listed as manual and the Status column said Inspection Service is running. When I clicked on the Start
    button in Properties, I got an immediate message: "Win.. Def.. Anti.. Serv.. on local comp.. started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

    need of antivirus

    Yes. Every Windows version needs an Anti-Virus.

    Windows 10 comes with in-built AV Windows Defender.

    Whether you want to use Windows Defender or want to install another AV: that depends on your own preferences and habits.

    No matter which AV you want to use, there might be situations in which you want to use other Anti-Malware programs for occasional, on-demand scans.
